In less than a week after the announcement of a new slate of projects heading to Netflix, Michelle Obama with the exclusion of her husband Barrack has disclosed her solo project ‘Waffles + Mochi’, set to premiere on the streaming platform come March 16.
The show is expected to take children on an adventure from around the world finding new ingredients and recipes.
”In many ways, this show is an extension of my work to support children’s health as First Lady—and to be quite honest, I wish a program like this had been around when my girls were young. I also know that this is a difficult time for so many families, and I’m hopeful that this delightful show can bring a bit of light and laughter to homes around the world,” said Michelle in a released statement.
Aside the show’s entertaining offer, it is also committed to helping families amidst the low productivity caused by the pandemic and as a result formed an alliance with Partnership for a Healthier America to source fresh ingredients to families in need across the country to aid in their home meals.
The Obama’s collaboration with Netflix was first ignited in 2018 when the former President and first lady signed a multi-year film and television deal with the platform. Already in development is ‘Exit West’, a feature starring Riz Ahmed and based on Mohsin Hamid’s novel of the same name.
Last year, Michelle premiered her documentary ‘Becoming’ on the streaming service, which chronicled her 34-city book tour in 2018-2019 for her best-selling memoir ‘Becoming.’
